A Portrait of Pepperdine
As George Pepperdine said at the opening dedication ceremony of the college he founded in 1937, "There are many good colleges and universities which can give you standard academic training, but if our school does not give you more than that, it really has no reason to exist." The purpose of this book, which arrives during the 75th anniversary of that founding day, is to identify and highlight the ways in which Pepperdine University continues to bring life to this idea.
"Just got the books today — beautiful! There's nothing like seeing the actual thing."
Michael J. Menichetti

In order to do this, photographer Julian Andrews was asked to follow the people that make up Pepperdine today — the students, the professors, the administrators, the athletes, the coaches — as they went about their daily business of learning, sharing, inspiring, or just relaxing. Armed with his stunning images (which are complemented by photographic treasures from the University archives), we present you with this singular version of Pepperdine life, rounded at the edges but bursting at the seams with that particular sense of community, excellence, and uniqueness that this university engenders.
